She s! peth a happy sleep.
Knowing tin grief or tear:
O'er the peace which she bath won
There riseth no drsam of fear.
For the measure of earthly joys
She maketh not sorrowful quest:
She will wake she will wake once more
In the beautiful land of Rest!
On her brow, so pure and white,
The kiss of the zngels fell;
TLey wooad her away frrmn ta,
Who loved her so long and welL
On her spirit rests the cals *
God giveth rato the blest;
And oh, she will wake again
In the beautiful laud of Rest?
Though our arms are empty now,
Though idly our hands must fall,
Though as fee l in our aching hrarta
The pain that must come to all.
Though our river of llime runs dry,
Tears crowil to our lonely eyes,
Yet we tfel that she is bles
In the houwe tiiyond the skies.
Dark. dark is the shadow that falls
Stor the house, so dewalate now;
For the mother no longer bends
(m'e, h. r ehy s upturned brow.
And the he.art that beat with hers.
Like a wounded bird sinks dowa;
For he loved her - loved her so,
And his life hath lost its crown
Yet look through the gloom of night,
beyond where the shadows fall,
To tho' laind of love and light

To brighten tbi lonely years.

While you liuger her. below.

On 'eur path .till grow the flowers.

CHOICE SELECTIONS.
JClo QUINC1 ADAMS ON TIE SITIATION.
AyOTrnR LJTTELt.
A citizen of Arkansas has recived
the following letter from John
Quincy Adams;
Qrtnetr, Mass., June 5, 1871.
Dr.tn Sam: I cannot ptass over,
silently, a letter which gratifies nme
as anubh as yours, which I received
to-day; and yet I feel ashy of speak
ing to you or any citizen of the;
"subject States." I dislike to earn
the retort-'Oh, it is very easy to
preach; but suffer as we have and
then tell us how you feel, and we
will listen." I do try to take it
home to myself; and Ido not doubt~
that., in aamilar- circnamstances, I
should be to-Jay an "unrepentant
rebel"-sore, angry, beaten and
detinnt. And with me it would
doubtless have been as it, has been
with you, that "the tender mercies
of ricoustruction had been harder
to bear than all the horrors of in
vautive war." I should have been
gal'el by misgovernment, robbed
by izapurtcd hcanvery, of the pit
tance which the war had spared;
eiaspcrated by willfnl and persia
tent mlisreprcaentat.iot; cruelly con
duzmned to hopeless impotence for
the imputed guilt of cowardly
e.-imes I abborreut I should banve
biten condemnned, too, to hold my
lxesnal liberty at the rnod of a
mecenary carpet-baggor or the
whim of a military entrap. . I ay
that I four I stonid have been an!
"irreconciliable." . n stuch a case II
think I should 1e : a ky; butl know
I sbould be siily if I yrielded to the
feelhng. For, whence must my re
iicf coase if my last estate isnot to
.beequ~e .worse than thiek.e? IsI
the "lost cause" can be regained ?
By whom, then? If by the North,
believe me that the experiment of
Seoemsioa has matisfied us that no
cause is worth a civil war. That
war has confirmed, beyond a blmdow
of a turning, the destiny which
decreed that there shall be but one
confederated people of the North
American Union. No. 'Rebellions
I might be; but weak enough to
await the resurrection of Secession
I do not think I could be. You
and I and your friends and neigh
bors and mint are of onr blood; we
were once "fellow-citizens;" and the
old-time kindness muxi; linger yet
in spots. Our fathers were "breth
ren," and that must count for some
thing.
The whole political problem of
the future turns upon the answer to
the question, "Shall we lire to
gether as frictds or enemies ?'.
Now, the whole internal policy of
the present Administration says
War. Reconstruction meant War,
and the Ku-Klux bill declared War;
This Union is now held together by
force. Certainly, if this is to be
permanent, it would have been
letter to have parted at first. If
the struggle to cast out Slavery
ov rthrew the Constitution, what
chance is there for a "free" Govern
meat, if the North is to rnle the
South? South Carolina is to-day
tdo most smdmmzel s. parody on Re
publican insiLdtlois ::inwe ltRub
lican Rome bestrade all the nations
of the ancient world, put the sword
to their throats, stripped theon bare,
r'nl then lacked words to land the
the loveliness of liberty. You can
not be subject, and we be long free.
The untrammeled exercise of local
self-government by the people of
the States is the salt which preserves
our whole system. Take that away
and our frame of polity will rapidly
rot into despotism. Therefore it is,
that, not as a pmrtissn, hut wholly
as a fellow-citizen, I trust that all
the good citizenis of the seceded
States will frankly and honestly
accept the revolutionary changes;
which have been forced upon the
Constitution, and with them cheer
fully adopt tha new relations of ami
ty and politcal equality toward the
em::nhip dtod class which the a'
changts involve. And, theretore, I
am glad when I sec the noble spirit
of your letter prevading the South
ern people as it does, despite the
the malignity of a partisan press.
while the sterling sense or Mr. Val
landigham has reformed the North
ern Democracy. And it matters not
what man may be chosen to lead
us So long as his heart is large
enough to embrace a Confederate as
a brother, and his platform wide
enough for every American citizen
to stand upon. To compass this
end somnetiug of sacrifice is requir
ed of us all; munch of self-control is
demanded of the South. You and
all I hear assure me that the at-j
tempt will be made; and if made
honestly and in earnest, it cannot
fail. Again thanking you for your.
letter, I ama, very respectfully, your
obedient servant,

What a wonderfal oil upon the
machinery of human affairs tact is.
To know just what to say; to know
when to be silent, and when differ
entially to listen, is a groat gifL
No one can fully appreciate this
quality who has not had the mist or
of living with a blundering person
who never speaks or moves a ithout
unintentionally wounding or offend
ing somebody. Contiguity with
inuch a one is fearful to tae nerves,
and temper too. We doubt wheth
er tact, in any considerable degrees
can be required- It is born with
sme, and is as natoral to them as~
the color of their hair ea eycs. We
have meen little children who were
perfect in it, without the ulightest
idea of courst of the diplomnacy
they were mssaciag
"I say, Jack, hbw did the get the
cow up stairs dhe other night ?
"*Twisted her ta."' "Well, how did
they get 'her dakfmi' "Untwisted

"You knbw my opinion," amid
John Randolph, "of female society.
Without it we should degenerate
into brutes." This observation ap
plies with tenfold force to young
men, and those who are is the
prime of manhood. For after # cer
tain time of life, the literary man
may make a shift-a poor one, I
grant-to do without the society of
ladies. To a youth man nothing is
so important as a spirit of devotion
-next to his Creator-to some aim
able woman, whose image may oc
cupy his heart, and guard it from
pollution, which besets it on all
Rides. A man ought to choose his
wife, as Mrs. Pimrose did her wed
ding gown, for qualities that "wear
I well." One thing at least is true,
that if matrimony has its cares,
celibacy has no pleasure. A New
ton, or a mere scholar, may find
employment in study; a man of lit
erary taste can receive in books a
powerful auxiliary; but a man must
have a bosom-friend and children
round him, to cherish and support
the dreariness of old-age.
LACK OF APPREGIATiII OF SAUlTRY UFI.
People who live altogether in the
country have very little appreciation
of its advantages and pleasures.
Why should they think ainything of
fresh air? It is too commbn. They
have it all the time. Everybody
around them has it all the time.!
And as a general thing, people esti
mate very lightly blessings of which
they have niever been deprived.
It is only persons who are con
fined a portion of the time in the
city, who are really capable of a full
appreciation of country life.
Farmers, who wor: the land forI
a living. soon come to regard all its
'products with a single eye to proft.
There is something very narrowing
in this influence. It closes the
view to beauty, and the soul against
all the poetical and etnobling sen
titoents which a proper contempla
tion of nature is so well ealculnted
to awaken. The tendency with far
mers is to become too exc'nsively
uwere matter-of-fact machines. The
clouds, the sunshine, the shade, the
trees, the refreshing showers, the
beautiful wild flowers-they see
nothing in all these except so far as
they may affect their potatoes and
turnips and corn.
We believe that one principal
reason of the higher taste for rural
life in England, is to be found in
the fact that city pcople live so
much more in the country there.
The great increase of the facilities
for travel is making our count-y
rapidly more and more like England
in this resp ect.
1PURIFICATION OF DRINKING-WATER.
The best method of purifying water
is by free'.ing. or distillation. By the
cautious use of ice water, if not taken
at a too low degree of tempereturs. es
peciallr when the bodly is heated to
perspfratiou, the dangerous influence
of putrescent water on the const itution,
producing fever and ague, is at once
avoided. By filtration or agitation
with coarsely-powdered freshburnt
charcoal, either aimal or vegetable,
not only will the suspended organic
Imatter be mechanically removed,
but also the caleareous and gaseous,
impurieer, held in solution. The
addition of alittie aqueous chlorine,
or chlorine gas. to foul water, clean-,
aes 'it immediately. This method
has the advantage of the water be
ing perfect1y freed from any excess
jof the precipitant by heat. If eblo
'rated lime be used, a few drops of
aupnipric acid will free the chlorine
gas eompletely, to act upon the
water, saudprecipitate the esuspended
lime as gypemn; cooking the water
is also Demmaary. An ounce of pow
'deredislum, dissolved and well ag
itated inabogshead orimoreof foul
water, will precipitato the SAli mat
ter is the course of a few hours
when the clear portion may be de
canted. When the water is ver
putrid a scruple *to a dmebhn may
be employed to the g-illon, and any
alum that may be left in solutima
will be pseeipitsted by the addition
